Any education in Geology involves a serious exploration of the rocks, landforms and weather in as many terrains as possible. The department frequently conducts field trips to local and regional areas of interest to provide students with hands-on experience and reinforce concepts being presented in our classes.

In addition, the January break is utilized to explore exotic terrains in the U.S. such as Basin and Range Geology in Death Valley and Hawaii and in international localities such as the Galapagos Islands, Costa Rica, the Bahamas, and Iceland.
